To answer your original question; Alabama Getaway is a clever-crafted tale and if Jerry is on and hot-to-trot on any given evening, particularly if he chooses to open the set with this lil number, there's good room in there for him to stretch out and work his magic on some runs/scales and that had a tendency to get the other five cylinders up and moving in synchronization.

As far as the big Walrus Belushi is concerned, i believe the party time line you're looking for in the weeks up to his tragic passing on March 5th, 1982 began on the set of Saturday Night Live October 11th, 1975 and ran seven long years!
